The conclusions set forth in this book are the result of more than twenty years of study and research in my efforts to find a unifying theme common to all development systems that promise personal growth, mind expansion and spiritual development. In my research in psychology and psychiatry , I became aware of the wide application of hypnosis as a therapeutic tool. I determined I would study the science of hypnotism in a comprehensive way... Much of the material in this book, theoretical as well as practical, was stimulated by the remarkable teachings and influence of an extraordinary man, Gil Boyne. Mr. Boyne calls his method of overcoming the negative scripts of the past, "Power Programming." He has revised the stereotyped concepts of Auto-suggestion and created the first totally new methods in more than forty years!
